Jimmy Pan finished runner up in this event last year to Randy Lew, and he's doing very well again this year. Fellow countryman Jorn Walthaus wasn't that fortunate, as he just ran into his friend's straight flush.
Pan raised preflop to 1,225 and Walthaus called, as did one other player. The flop came down and Pan fired out 2,100. Walthaus opted to call, and they went heads up to the turn.
On the turn the showed up and Pan followed through with a 3,100-chip bet. Walthaus called once more and the river completed the board when the hit. Pan decided to check and Walthaus grabbed chips. He threw out 6,000 but that didn't scare Pan. He check-raised to 22,500 and Walthaus quickly called.
Pan turned over for a straight flush, and Walthaus flashed the as he lost the majority of his chips. On the very next hand Pan raised to 1,525 and Walthaus moved all in for 1,700. Pan called.
The board ran out , and Walthaus was knocked out. Pan's hopes for back-to-back deep runs are still very well alive. After Walthaus was knocked out there are now just two Dutch players remaining. Gijs Verheijen is sitting out 55,000 chips, and even though that's below average he still has plenty of room to play.
